Nesle, Blast Radius Parting Ways (Updated, Sorta)

stevenesleWe’ve received confirmation that Steve Nesle‘s time at Blast Radius has come to an end. No word yet on what lies ahead for the creative or if anyone’s replacing him, but Nesle has served as ECD/East for the WPP/Wunderman agency since late 2012. Prior to Blast, Nesle, you may recall, served in a similar role for two years at Deutsch New York and also held senior creative roles at what was then Tribal DDB as well as MRM Worldwide during his career.

Update: Wait, what? After getting direct confirmation from those in the know that “yes he is departing” a half hour later we get word from the same party involved that whoops, Nesle “continues to support Blast Radius accounts out of New York and Toronto.” Perhaps his  position has just changed within the network but this is quite the quick and confusing about-face. We’ll try to sort out this little mess as soon as we can and will update when we hear.

Update 2: Finally, we’ve received confirmation that Nesle’s tenure with Blast Radius is indeed up towards the end of this month.

Wait, Did Steve Nesle Just Land at Blast? (Update: Affirmative)

We’ve been hearing about this since around 11:45 in the AM today and now we’ve received what appears to be the memo confirming the new job of one Steve Nesle, who you may remember parted ways (or vice versa) with Deutsch New York after spending two years leading digital creative as EVP/ECD at the agency. Well, the creative exec seems to have resurfaced in a familiar role, joining Wunderman-owned digital network Blast Radius as ECD of its East Coast operations. We’re trying to get official confirmation from the agency including start date, but in the meantime, peep the aforementioned memo (we’re also trying to find out the author) after the jump. Update: Sources familiar with the matter have confirmed Nesle’s arrival at Blast. He started today. Phew.

Nesle Out at Deutsch NY

We’ve received confirmation that Deutsch New York has parted ways this week with EVP/ECD Steve Nesle, who joined up with said agency over two years ago to oversee digital creative. While the Deutsch camp wouldn’t get into specifics in regards to Nesle’s departure, they do tell us, “We’re in the process of making some internal shifts in staffing to better align with the needs of our clients.”

Prior to his stint at Deutsch, Nesle spent nearly five years at Tribal DDB, where he perhaps most notably played a key role in creating the “Shave Everywhere” work for Philips. During his career, Nesle also led the creative departments at Modem Media in San Francisco and New York and did the same at MRM.

The Manning Bros Tackle Crime-Fighting During Off-Season

Wow, look what the NFL lockout has done to our pro football stars. First teased and given the snark treatment on Deadspin weeks ago (sorry for the lag, it took us some time to get credits), here’s the full trailer for Peyton and Eli Manning, much anticipated mini-series for DirecTV called “Football Cops.” The plot synopsis: “Two former pro football players who bring their unique brand of law enforcement to one of the country’s toughest neighborhoods.”

Peyton and Eli play Mike Tahoe and C.J. Hunter, respectively, and they use footballs as weapons while wearing mustaches even Cochise would find tacky. According to Deutsch NY, which is behind this send-up that was shot in Brooklyn and promotes the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket (here’s hoping there’s use for one), the video has tallied over 750, 000 views since its launch late last week. It’s pretty damn amusing we say, so we’re not surprised. Eli Manning’s acting chops be damned, here’s hoping for more installments of this silly crime-fighting saga. For those of you really into this, there’s a site to download wallpapers, ringtones, etc., but we even have our limits. Credits after the jump.
